It is also a story of a little girl’s victory over fear.

MIKAYLA Francis is celebrating her seventh birthday today with a party and a cake that should say: To the World’s Bravest Girl.

Mikayla has captured the hearts of everyone who has read the Herald Sun story of her battle against a rare liver cancer. It is also a story of a little girl’s victory over fear.

Mikayla knows she is dying, but worries only that she will be forgotten. That will never happen. Today, she will celebrate her birthday and an early Christmas because doctors fear she will die.

Her family are devastated. They know that by Christmas Mikayla may have gone.

Hundreds of family, friends and well-wishers are gathering at her home in Cockatoo, uplifted by a child’s quiet dignity.

When Mikayla was asked what she was looking forward to, she answered like any little girl. With a heart-wrenching innocence, Mikayla said she was looking forward to “Everything”.
